Folks, we had a special guest today at the Freakshow..........Murrugun The Mystic. In the past, he has performed some of the most dangerous stunts I have ever seen. Today, he did what only one other man has done......he SWALLOWED A FLAMING SWORD......not a sword with it's hilt on fire, but the actual blade ON FIRE!!! Has anyone ever seen this before??? It is defintely a SHOCKER Smile The audience could barely believe what they were seeing. I was standing at the side of the stage BUGGING OUT!!! I'll post some video soon........

Have not seen or been able to do this myself,,,nearest I came would be to have swallowed the sheath then the blade into the sheath, did this with the neon tube cos I never felt confident doing it straight.

Did Murrugun ask Dan Meyer's permission?

Harley, I'm not sure if he asked permission, but he did give him credit for being the first. It really is amazing to see......but not easy. Afterwards, Murrugun was coughing up fuel for a couple of minutes outside. I don't know about everyone, but I am encouraging all performers to push the Sideshow arts to the next level. We have all been inspired by the greats and we should all continue to advance by learning from the best and pushing forward Creatively. In the course of history, all good things and ideas get used, but very few can say that they have come up with something new....Dan will definitely have his place at the top of Sword Swallowing History. I know that Murrugun will also....at the top of Sideshow History. There is no other man that I know of that can perform all the stunts he can do......Next year, he will be doing something that will even take him higher than the "Torture King" and put him in the "Most Dangerous Human Stunts" History books for eternity. I will keep you all posted as he trains for this truly Death Defying Stunt.

Uhhh.... yeah, did you actually READ what people are saying about this? That they've never seen it nor been able to do it. "lots of people".... you mean two or three? Out of the 6+ billion people on the planet? What can you do?

Well Nipps anyone who would try to downcry anothers stunt such as this must at least be capable of talking out of their own @ss. Which I suppose could be classed as an achievement as well !

Any vid of this ?

I'm not downplaying anyone's stunt. T-ray was really going out and asking for a responce to his posts. So I responded that it's not the second time its ever been done, Murrugan didn't invent it, nor did Dan Meyer. Its not often done, and it looks really cool, but I've seen videos of it before by a few people and heard of a few more who have done it. That's all I was saying. I was responding to T-Ray's plea for a responce asking if anyone's heard of it, and I said that I have indeed heard of people doing this before. Its rare enough that you could claim to an audience that you're the only one who's ever done it and they'd for the most part believe you and be amazed, but on the magic Café where its supposed to be people out there who do these stunts, its been done before. that's all.

Who did invent it then? I heard that Dan Meyer was the first to do it. Either way, there are very few in the World who would even consider this stunt. Oddity Prodigy, I can't wait to reveal Murrungun's most Dangerous stunt ever!!! Even you will have to give it up for this one.......but that's a little down the road. By the way, have you come up with any new stunts/routine's recently? I'm not sure who you are, but if you are who I think you are Smile I know you do some cool things too. Keep us posted on the limits you are pushing....I love hearing about and seeing the next level.

Dan came up with it, and we had a discussion about how long it would be, before other swallowers were copying it. I figured it'd be about a week after it first aired on AGT. Dan was more generous in his estimate.

Prior similar performances involved first swallowing a sheath.

OdProd, are you sure you aren't confusing a flaming pommel, which is pretty common, with what they are speaking of? To be more clear I think what they are talking about is an entire flaming blade, and not just the pommel.

I'm not taking anything away from anyone. It's a great stunt, and Dan Meyer is a great sword swallower. Murrugan gets a lot of work cause he goes out and busts his butt everywhere he can. The stunt and the people who do it are fun to watch. I don't think Dan invented it, I thought I've heard of it before, I could be wrong, but if Dan was the first then Murrugan is not the second because as I said, I've seen people do it in youtube vids, and heard of people doing it as well.
But if he's got a routine that's fun, and he likes to swallow flaming swords, he should keep on doing it because who cares if he's the 2nd or 200th person to do it, chances are the audience hasn't seen it before and they will like it.
